Development Foundation Boards

The Holmes Development Foundation stewards your donations well, utilizing their 18-member Board of Directors, as well as the Foundation Board of Governors. Development directives are thoughtfully considered with representation from the nine counties served by the college. We always encourage alumni and friends of the college to come back and serve the institution. If you are interested in serving on our Foundation Board of Governors or Board of Directors, please contact Dr. Lindy McCain at (662) 472-9067.
